Life has swirled out of control the last while, and my poor blog (and blog reading) has suffered. I hope to be back on the bloggy bandwagon with my regular schedule soon.
(No guarantees, however . . .)
Okay, Now for Some BIG NEWS!
I'm on the Radio!
If you're in Utah, tonight (that's Monday, March 29th) at 10:00 pm, tune in to FM 100.3.
Rebecca Cressman will be hosting me and my friend Chris. We'll talk about Band of Sisters, supporting military families, promoting Elaine Dumler's Free Flat Daddy Project, and discuss what deployment is really like.
Chris was an invaluable resource for me as I wrote the book, having gone through a deployment. She's facing their second one soon.
(Remember to visit MY FLAT DADDY PAGE to donate as much or as little as you can!)
I'm on TV!
Likewise, for Utah people, be sure to watch Good Things Utah on ABC4 this Wednesday, March 31st. The show airs for an hour at 10:00 am, and I'll be there with an actual Flat Daddy of a soldier currently deployed.
I'm Signing Books!
Then this Saturday, April 3, I'll be at the Layton Hills Mall Deseret Book for Ladies Night (6:00 pm - 8:00 pm). Please come so I'm not lonely. :)
Lately, if I'm not running around like a headless chicken for promotion, you can probably find me baking in the kitchen or at a photo shoot for Chocolate Never Faileth!, which goes to press in just over a month. (See why I've been a teeny, tiny bit busy?)
Between family stuff, promotion, a cookbook craziness, I'm lucky to keep the family from starving and going naked, let alone keeping up on my blogging. (Let's not discuss the vacuum and other housekeeping items that have been neglected . . .)
That said, many others have been spreading the word about Flat Daddies and Band of Sisters, Krista even did an author interview with me, and I've come across a couple of really nice (and surprise!) reviews of the book.
Take a look:
(This review said exactly what I hope readers will experience: that yes, while Band of Sisters is about deployment, at its core, it's really about "women connecting and befriending each other.")
Thanks to you all!
Pictures from the launch party coming soon . . . I swear . . . I think . . . yeah, that should happen at some point . . . probably . . .
